IF YOU SMELL...WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKING!

Michael N. Todaro

Ronda Rousey has some pretty powerful friends.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight champion spent part of her UFC 168 training camp on set for Fast & Furious 7. The blockbuster film franchise stars Vin Diesel, the late Paul Walker, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

While the films originally showcased the world of illegal street racing, they've since become high speed action movies that do gangbusters at the box office. Rousey was cast in a yet-to-be announced role in the film. She follows in Gina Carano's footsteps, who had a significant role in the sixth film.

"The Rock" is staid to be a huge fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) and judging from the photo he tweeted out, he's willing to put his support and massive back behind his co-star.

Rousey hopes to defend her belt against Miesha Tate in the co-main event of UFC 168, which goes down on Dec. 28, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on pay-per-view.
